  • The best(and not mention most original and vulgar) episode of 'The Comic Strip Presents...'

    10
    It's the most orginal, smartest, grossest and truely funniest things i have ever seen. It is the second thing i have watched that has made me laugh in pain. It was truely hilarious. Eddie Monsoon:A Life is mandatory for people with comedy taste. It has a real iconic opening scene as well. And Jennifer Saunders is truely brilliant as Monsoon's cheating, ex lesbian wife Doreen. For me, this programme marks Edmondson as a genius and made me like his work as soon as a i saw it. In a word, it is magnificent.moreless

    • This episode was original scheduled for series 1 and was titled 'Back To Normal With Eddie Monsoon', however Channel 4 thought it was too rude and it wasn't made until series 2 when the episode had been rewritten. In the new version 'Eddie Monsoon A Life?' there is a tv debate discussing why Eddie's series was cancelled and some of the things mentioned do appear in the original Back To Normal script which was published as part of the original 6 Comic Strip scripts in book form. Within the Eddie Monsoon A Life episode you can see a real newspaper article about 'Back To Normal..' having to be cut.

    • In this episode, Adrian Edmondson plays "Eddie Monsoon". In the later series "Absolutely Fabulous", Jennifer Saunders played "Edina Monsoon", who is known to her friends as "Eddie". Jennifer Saunders is the real-life wife of Adrian Edmondson.
